SEAMLESS NOSE THREADLIFT

NOSE THREAD LIFTS HAVE BEEN AN INCREASINGLY POPULAR PROCEDURE OVER THE RECENT YEARS DUE TO ITS LOW INVASIVENESS BUT PROMINENT RESULTS. AS COMPARED TO RHINOPLASTY, NOSE THREAD LIFTS ARE RELATIVELY SAFER AND QUICKER. THREAD LIFT PROCEDURES ARE USUALLY DONE FOR THE NOSE TIPS AND/OR NOSE BRIDGES.


SIMILAR TO FACIAL THREAD LIFTS, THE MATERIAL USED FOR NOSE THREAD LIFTS ARE OF MEDICAL GRADE AND ARE USED FOR SURGERIES. HOWEVER, PDO THREADS ARE USED MOST OF THE TIME FOR THE NOSE AREA. THESE THREADS ARE DESIGNED WITH BARBED HOOKS TO BRING ABOUT THE LIFTING MOTIONS, ENHANCING THE BRIDGE AND NOSE AREA ALMOST INSTANTLY. RESULTS FROM NOSE THREAD LIFTS CAN LAST UP TO 2 YEARS, WITH REPEATED FOLLOW-UP PROCEDURES IN BETWEEN TO MAXIMISE THE DURATION.


NOSE THREAD LIFTS ARE CONSIDERED THE SAFEST NOSE ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURES AS COMPARED TO THAT OF RHINOPLASTY AND EVEN NOSE FILLERS. THERE ARE NO RISKS OF MIGRATION AND SPREADING OF MATERIALS ACROSS THE NOSE AREA. DOWNTIME IS RELATIVELY SHORT AS WELL, AT 3 TO 5 DAYS MAXIMUM WITH SLIGHT SWELLING AND/OR BRUISING AT SITE OF INSERTION.

Q&A

How it works


Uses absorbable Polydioxanone (PDO) or Polycaprolactone (PCL) threads that are 100% bio-compatible with the human body. The PDO threads are inserted horizontally into the nose bridge and vertically into the nose tip which could help to address ill-defined noses that lack height and projection. These threads act as a scaffolding structure to achieve higher, straighter and sharper nose bridge. The tiny anchoring points (barbs) throughout the threads also allows it to ‘tighten’ when inserted. This results in a more lifted and sharper nose tip.




Results


Nose Threads are made of PDO/PCL which will be absorbed by the body. They typically last around 12 months - 3 years depending on the type of material used, lifestyle and how your body reacts to it. Skin conditions, smoking, age, level of sun exposure, how you treat your skin and drinking habits are some factors that come into play in how these threads will last.




What to expect


Prior to your first treatment, your doctor will consult with you to assess your skin condition and your suitability on the types and number of threads and also the methods used.




Benefits


Collagen remodelling effect and a more lifted, defined and sharper nose.




Downtime


By using the Seamless Traceless Technique, there will be no visible insertion point seen. For conventional method of insertion, there will be small insertion mark from where the local numbing solution was injected and where the threads were inserted, and possibly mild swelling for about 2-3 days.




Post treatment care


Avoid going to the steam room, sauna, swimming, excessive alcohol intake and engaging in heavy exercise such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for the next 5 days post procedure. Avoid vigorous rubbing and frequent touching on the treatment area/thread insertion point to prevent risk of infection. You are also advised to sleep on your back to allow the swelling to subside and to avoid pressure on the face that might cause misalignment of the threads. Patient will be advised on post treatment care after the procedure.




Follow up


Patient will be advised to return for a follow up session 2-3 weeks post procedure. For optimal results, repeat follow up treatments 9-12 months after the initial treatment. For some cases, combination treatments with fillers for nose contouring would be recommended.
